Catholic Relief Services
February 4, 2011

CRS uses donations efficiently, and works with people "based on need, not creed". You don't have to be Catholic to support them or to receive helpf from them. Aid is non-sectarian and based on their belief that every human being deserves to live with dignity.

It is well known that they respond to emergency situations with short term emergency relief when needed ( the tsunami, Haitian earthquake), but just as importantly also on long term solutions - micro financing, education, peace-building, securing clean water supplies, HIV education and medication, helping farmers be more productive and self-sufficient. Their goal is not a culture of dependence on aid, but a planting the seeds for a live changing, culture changing improvements.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with the Patches of Hope program in Cambodia that provided work sewing quilts to women with HIV, and also hospice care when they became to sick to work.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage them to be more visible - get there name out there so people think of them first when they wish to donate to a crisis or an ongoing development issue
